Update: After this investigation, I did an experiment: Stun monsters and Shield, then melee as a mage. Using Barrukheled, at only 216 damage vs evil, I was able to melee a Great Crystal Drake and a Great Bile Wyrm with essentially zero damage in response. (the GCD didn't breathe, and I have Thorin.) The GCD did 5 total melee points damage. The GBW did 20. This certainly improves the situation enormously; it's much easier than Rune of Protection. However, it still doesn't help against big spellcasters: I am actually doing closer to 100 damage than 200 per turn, because of low hit probability. Taking them in melee simply doesn't help.
